OSR192 Marie Farge on her Vision of the Scholarly Publishing System #oscibar [EN]

This episode was recorded at the Barcamp Open Science 2020 in Berlin but is not a summary of a session. Instead you can look forward to a deeper discussion with Marie Farge in which she presents her vision of the scholarly publishing system. In the suggested szenario, journals are owned by their editorial boards and are running on publicly funded infrastructure (classic platinum Open Access) which ensure proper peer-review by the community of a field. She also elaborates the important role of commercial publisher which should run multidisciplinary journals for the popularisation of science and the translation of new findings to a broader public.

Many of the ideas discussed are described in the chapter Marie contributed to the European Commission’s publication Europe’s Future: Open Science, Open Innovation, and Open to the World (edited by Carlos Moedas). A PDF-version of her chapter is publically available.

OSR138 WikiCite 2018 – Interview with Finn [EN]

As in the last 2 years, Konrad visited the WikiCite event again and took the opportunity to do a couple of interviews with participants.

“WikiCite 2018 is a 3-day conference, summit, and hack day dedicated to the vision of creating an open repository of bibliographic data to support the citation and fact-checking needs of Wikimedia projects, and possibly, to serve as an open infrastructure for research, education, and information quality across the web.”

This interview is with Finn Årup Nielsen about the Scholia, a tool to handle scientific bibliographic information through Wikidata. Enjoy!
